  • 8 ounces skinless chicken breast
  • 1 head small head cabbage
  • 1 sliced red bell pepper
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1/2 teaspoon chinese five spice (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoon oil for cooking
  • 1 tablespoon seasame oil

Stir Fry Sauce

  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce ()
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch


  • Chop all veggies and chicken up, then season chicken with salt and pepper. Make stir fry sauce then set aside.
  • In a hot frying pan make sure it's big enough to hold all the ingredients set it to high heat and add oil for cooking, not seasme oil
  • Place chicken in pan, sear and cook until done. When finished remove from pan then go to next step
  • Add broccoli and bell peppers. Season and cook, once done remove from pan then go to next step
  • Place cabbage in. If looking dry add a little oil. Cook until tender with a slight crunch. Add about 1/2 teaspoon of salt to cabbage then pour in stir fry sauce.
  • Once you have mixed stir fry sauce in add everything back in the pan together and mix a little to marinate flavor. Takes about 1 minutes then turn off heat.
  • Taste to see if you need to add more soy sauce/coconut aminos or salt. Add only 1 tsp soy sauce/coconut aminos at a time or 1/2 tsp salt at a time you don't want to go over. See notes why...
  • Add tablespoon of seasme oil then serve.


Helpful Recipe Tips

  • For gluten free, use coconut aminos 1:1 because soy sauce has gluten in it. Also skip the oyster sauce as well. Although great it's mainly for a thickener. Think tomato sauce and tomato paste.
  • For the keto diet, skip the oyster sauce, cornstarch and skip the red bell peppers. You can always sub for green.
  • Add more oil when needed. Due to the heat the veggies or meat can start to look a little dry. Simply add a little more oil when needed. Taste test for the sauce as well or salt. Depending on the size of the cabbage the water can wash away the flavor a little which is why I suggest a small head.
